We are all flawed, we all make mistakes, we all do stupid, idiotic things in the rush of a moment – convincing ourselves that it is justified then only seeing in retrospect, that it was in fact, a grave error.
That is what being a human is all about, right?
Meghan Markle’s Dad has f**ed up.
Big deal. He is human. Naive. Unprepared. Perhaps even slightly greedy. Confused. Overwhelmed.
He was left to ride this massive press tsunami alone, advised only by his family who, guess what, are also unprepared, naive, confused and perhaps a little bit greedy in the face of one of their own becoming a Princess.
He has not ‘betrayed’ his daughter.
They love each other very much.
He made a bad move which he considered at the time to be a ‘business’ decision.
So, what does that tell us?
It tells us, even more so, that Meghan is a very normal girl from a very normal, complicated family full of HUMAN BEINGS, in a very abnormal situation.
They are messy, flawed, raw.
Bottom line is she needs her Dad with her on her big day and the media and the press need to let up on this man and let him get over his humiliation in peace.
So he can catch a plane and do the right thing.
Families aren’t simple. Humanity isn’t simple.
Let those who be without sin cast the first stone…
